2009 Tenuta di Salviano - Lago di Corbara Turlò (750ml)

Nestled among Umbria's rolling hills between Todi and Orvieto, the Salviano estate occupies 4,940 acres surrounding Lake Corbara and the banks of the Tiber River in the heart of the Orvieto D.O.C. production zone.

Owned by the Marchesa Nerina Corsini Incisa della Rocchetta and run with the help of her sons, Piero and Giovanni, Salviano is part of a much larger estate, Titignano, located across the lake, in the eponymous medieval village. Built in 937AD, the Titignano castle and its court grew by the 17th century to include the village and the surrounding land including the Salviano castle and its property.

The Salviano vineyards are planted to Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Trebbiano Toscano (Procanico clone) and Grechetto, and extend over 173 acres, rising from 150m to 500m above sea level. These newly planted vineyards of indigenous and international varieties produce excellent quality red and white wines from the classic Orvieto Classico Superiore to progressive luxury red blends.

Salviano's state of the art vinification and cellaring facilities are located in the Salviano castle, situated on the left bank of Lake Corbara. Stainless steel vats are used for the fermentation of both white and red wines and barrel aging occurs in the cellar, which is entirely excavated from the tufa limestone beneath the property.

The historic Titignano castle has also recently benefited from extensive renovations with its main buildings refurbished by the Marchesa to include guest accommodations and a restaurant. Kobrand Importer
